The Pinnacle Overlook Trail at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park near Middlesboro Kentucky, is an easy 0.2 mile out-and-back hike to Pinnacle Overlook - Cumberland Gap's most iconic overlook.

The trail is short but well worth the drive to the top of the mountain in the middle of Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. By following the trail, you cross from Kentucky into Virginia, where the overlook lies.

Below is the town of Cumberland Gap, Virginia, and you can see the Tri-State Peak where Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia meet in the park.

With stunning views of the valley below, this is a must-see if you're driving by Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
